The feasibility study considered the sources of critical inputs (water and power) and application of outputs (hydrogen and oxygen). Capital cost was estimated, and a cost-benefit analysis was produced to allow an interested industry partner to make an investment decision on hydrogen at their plant.
Hydrogen offers red meat processing plants the following potential advantages:
- Lower costs
- Energy security
- No greenhouse gas emissions
- Energy storage and utilisation
- Noise minimisation
- Co-creation of oxygen and thermal energy
